We were given 30 days notice to GET OUT of our 11 Lonsdale Shop, the landlord Smitty kicked us out to open his own skate shop Ground Zero, which failed miserably .... karma rules! We found our New Shop in a 1930 Vintage Bank. This Heritage building was over 3500 square feet and included two walk in safes, and 2 foot thick concrete walls. Contractors ready with the reinforced board wall - It must hold over 1000 DECKS. Craig Oliver, Al Laidman and Greg Wilson ready shop for our grand opening. Empty bank on Wednesday by Saturday Canada's largest skateboard shop. Grand opening in just 48 hrs. With line ups around the block our staff did an incredible job keeping up with the 100's of skaters who showed up. Staff Dan Robertson (wheels) Greg Wilson (cash) Warren Wedley (shoes/decks) Trevor Smith (security) Craig Oliver (Grip Tape Specialist) and Chris Jackson on (decks) made this a one of a kind event never realized in retail skateboard history in Canada. Contractors have finished their work. Now to move the small shop up one block. Staff Al, Craig and Greg - Hoping the deck wall can hold all the weight. Airwalks, Sims, Vision everywhere ... Grand Opening in 32 hrs. Shop is filling up, deck wall is holding, now the window displays ... 24 hrs and counting.Local Motion Surf, Gotcha and Vision Street Wear Classic Art Window Displays finished for grand opening day celebrations.
